Cracking tar surface within a year of it being newly redone

Haysford Park Drive was very recently re-surfaced and I have noticed in a short time, cracks have appeared in many places and the painted lines have chipped off too. The cracks seem to be in a pattern of every few meters from one side of the pavement to the other.
